in Criminal Defense and Complex White-Collar Cases


Randy Sue Pollock got an acquittal with her “Abe Lincoln” approach. She asked the fewest number of questions, made the shortest opening statement, and gave the shortest closing argument…She had a very clear-cut agenda to zero in on one or two key issues. She did that very effectively, and at the end of the day, the jury gave her a complete acquittal of her client…Her approach of “less is more” was completely vindicated at the end. Read full article

Most people know and see her as a super lawyer, but I see her as my SUPERHERO. Despite having a complicated and multi-layered case, no obstacle was too big for Randy Sue Pollock to tackle. She believed in me and then proved to have the utmost due diligence in representing me and fighting for my story against the US government. Randy Sue has a mind that thinks ten steps ahead of everyone else, with the ability to articulate her argument better than anyone else in the room. Her consistent work ethic, steadfast commitment, and total transparency are just some of the greatest qualities that encapsulate the type of lawyer Randy Sue is. From before, during, and after the trial, Randy Sue was not only there for me as my lawyer, but as a lifelong friend. Additionally, the support she offered my family throughout the case, and the relationship they still have was unexpected, yet shows how above and beyond Randy Sue will go to support her clients. Randy Sue does not fight to win a battle, she fights to win the war. I trust her with my whole life and can whole-heartedly say that anyone lucky enough to have her as a lawyer will feel the same way.

I was referred to Randy Sue Pollock by a former attorney of mine. It was the best referral I’ve ever had in my life. I dealt with a serious matter (unbeknownst to me) where I needed someone of her caliber and experience

Congratulations to Randy Sue Pollock for winning an acquittal for her client, one of the seven defendants in the MS-13 case recently tried in federal court in San Francisco. Research on severance demonstrates that it is often difficult for jurors to make distinctions between individual defendants who may have varying degrees of culpability, but Randy Sue met the challenge.
